Arlington’s long-time favorite Delhi Dhaba Indian Restaurant is offering a new meal deal!
The meal deal: For a limited time, Delhi Dhaba’s $20 “Taste of India” special includes an entrée, a side dish of naan or rice, an appetizer of mixed pakoras and samosa, and a beverage, including Kingfisher Lager or a Golden Turmeric Latte. Entrée choices include butter chicken, chicken korma, chicken vindaloo, aloo gobi masala, palak paneer or chole.
The 29-year-old Delhi Dhaba, located in the heart of Arlington’s business district on Wilson Boulevard, continues to offer its successful “Family Meal” combination. The Family Meal offers four samosas, two chicken entrées, a vegetarian entrée, two orders of naan and two orders of rice for $40, and has proved to be a very popular as a carryout offering since its introduction this summer.
Delhi Dhaba regulars may not know what a “dhaba” is, but the word informs the philosophy behind the cooking: A dhaba is a roadside café, serving wholesome and hot Punjabi food to weary travelers in search of a hardy and inexpensive meal. That tradition continues, and has continued for nearly 30 years, at Delhi Dhaba.
The restaurant’s motto are words to live by: “khao, piyo, aish karo” — eat, drink and have fun.
